Cancelled – Home Cookery Workshop for Young People (16-18yrs old) @ The Arbury, 8 Whitehorse Street, SG7 6QN.
May 12 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Unfortunately we have had to cancel the event due to clashes with the Y12 mock exams at KTS and final exams.

Leaving home and/or heading to university? Join Martin, the Chef/owner of The Arbury, for a fun, informative and interactive demonstration to help show the next generation of young people leaving home, a few simple and basic dishes that are nutritious, tasty and of great value. Whether you are a novice or like to dabble a little, come along for a 2-hour demonstration. All recipes will be provided and the attendees can ask as many questions as they like.

For many young adults about to embark on the journey of leaving home can be quite a daunting one. Not just the act of leaving your family for the first time but having to deal with all the things that your parents did for you, washing, cleaning and of course the cooking. For many, the thought of cooking can be really, really scary and that’s where Martin can help.
With a fun, informative and interactive session, Martin can help show the next generation of young people a few simple and basic dishes that are not only nutritious but tasty and far better value than buying from the takeaway, as you will have to watch your pennies after all!
You need a healthy mind to achieve good results. Good food helps create a healthy mind. Not only will you feel better, study better but let’s be honest it is hugely satisfying doing something for yourself, especially if it’s for the first time and cooking is a great skill to master.
Whether you are a complete novice or like to dabble with the pots and pans, come join Martin for a 2-hour demonstration to help you on your journey to eating well, preparing you for the exciting journey ahead and helping you eat your way to a wonderful education.
All recipes will be provided and the attendees can ask as many questions as they like. This demonstration is for students about to go to university/college only!

Wed
Baldock Chef at Home takes over the Arbury @ The Arbury, Whitehorse Street, SG7 6QN
May 18 @ 7:00 pm

Chef at Home will be taking over The Arbury for one night only during the Baldock Festival. They are a local, family-run business with Kish behind the stove. He will be preparing a delicious five-course menu showcasing all that Chef at Home do with a focus on British produce which will include a British cheeseboard.
The Food Trailer
The newest addition to the family, one of the offerings from the newly converted horse trailer will be Indian Street Food so to start you’ll get to enjoy a selection of small bites from the street food menu.
Fish at Home Platter
Kish also runs Fish at Home with the help of his partner Kerry. He started Fish at Home to not only help support dayboat fishermen & their families during lockdown but to also make restaurant-quality fish more accessible to the local community. So to start you’ll be treated to a beautiful seafood platter filled with shellfish, cured fish & smoked fish. A seafood lover’s dream!
Private Catering
A growing part of Chef at Home is the private catering and by far the most requested menus are the bespoke 3-course menus Kish produces for dinner parties tailor-made for each customer. So for mains, you’ll be treated to a dish from his private catering menu using amazing South Devon beef that freely grazes less than 15 miles from Baldock, just north of Buntingford. It’ll be a main course to showcase not only the quality of the beef but also Kish’s skill set in the kitchen that he may not have showcased cooking his takeaway menus previously.
My favourite dessert
For dessert, Kish will prepare his favourite dessert, A warm chocolate fondant. It’s not only his favourite dessert to eat but also to prepare and to plate. It’s the perfect way to finish off a celebratory meal during the festival.
A British cheeseboard
When it comes to cheesemaking, we are a long way behind our European counterparts. Kish is passionate about supporting our ever-growing cheese industry by eating British cheeses where possible. The standard of British cheese has improved drastically over the last 15 years and needs our support more now than ever in order for it to continue to grow. The cheeseboard will be a fun way of discovering British cheeses as you’ll try 6 different cheeses from the mildest to the strongest. If there are any in particular you like, there’ll be an opportunity for you to purchase some to take home on the night.

Please note on this occasion we will not be able to cater for any alternative menu choices, allergies or intolerances.
